Russia Has Switched to 9 Times Zones

Nine time zones were introduced in Russia on September 1. This division was established by the President Act on June 3, 2011 and changed 11- time- belt Soviet system of 1919.

Nine time zones will be established in Russia from September 1. The most distant zones from Moscow - plus 8 hours to Moscow time - will be Kamchatka, Magadan and Sakhalin.


      The term "time zone" is replacing the "time belt." In March, Russia for the last time put the clock ahead one hour transferring to the "summer time."

In addition, it is planned to transfer on 30 October 2011 at 2:00 a.m. the Primorsky Territory and the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) to the 7th time zone (plus six hours to Moscow time), and the Irkutsk region - to the 5th time zone (plus four hours to Moscow time). These regions are currently one hour ahead of Moscow time.
